I think there are three reasons why people create, those are therapy, communication, and intervention. I don't think that one is more important than the other or better than the other, but I do think that an artist is successful when they can do all three"

MORGAN EVERHART

I’m an artist who doesn’t easily thrive off of moments of anxiety or distress, though I have come to appreciate the fruitful repercussions that can come of working through such periods. Painting, for me, is most accessible and abundant when I can imbue my practice with a sense of hope, potential, and discovery"

TAYLOR THOMAS

Guest Interviews

Are you a safe person? Then buy safe art. If not buy something that speaks of who you are, what you stand for, what you believe in. Never buy anything that looks good with your sofa"

KATE BRYAN

Artist Interviews

Words have been significant in the process of making. My purpose in creating this kingdom was my way of grasping the time. Each piece of work symbolizes each moment that no longer exists in the present reality"

SALOMÉ WU

My development as a photographer has coincided with that of digital technology. As digitalism has advanced and became more easily available, I have found myself moving in the other direction – gravitating towards traditional analogue methods"

CYRUS MAHBOUBIAN

Artist Interviews

I am very observant, I can spend hours in a group of people just standing in silence and watching. That’s not a very cool social skill, but it does come in handy when translating something into an image"

ORSOLA ZANE

Artist Interviews

I suppose I want my work to make people feel happy and uncomfortable at the same time, like they can’t quite tell if they are laughing with them or at them. Giving that unnerving feeling of not knowing what side of the joke they land on"

AMY WORRALL

My way of seeing painting embraces the strong belief that you only paint narrations which words can’t describe"

DAVIDE SERPETTI

I normally end up making a body of work about something that has become an obsession that lives inside my head, hijacking all other trails of thought. Something that started off quite fun then becomes intolerable"

ALBA HODSOLL

The images I make stem from an urge to subvert the narratives of women in these stories, labels or beliefs that I have grown up with"

SHAILEE MEHTA

I cannot deplete my inspiration in the painting medium. It feels limitless, therefore I still see immense and untapped opportunities within it"

LUCIA HORVÁTOVÁ

Artist Interviews

The need of a high level aesthetic, just like computer simulated, strong bright colours, sharp figures, and as a post-digital painter, all I'm doing is receiving it and translating it"

YAM SHALEV

Whether coincidentally or on a subconscious level, I have always disliked boundaries, borders and any form of segregation"

SARAH WREN WILSON

I began to reflect more and more on the joy that I get from making paintings; something which I don't get from anything else in the world. I can't say it's unalloyed joy, it's more like joy and pain at the same time"

ALA JAZAYERI

My previous relationship with art was one that had yet to be fully realised, as I always thought it to be something inaccessible to me. Girls that looked like me did not really 'do the art thing' "

ASHLEIGH BARICE

There is this moment that sometimes happens standing in front of an artwork, when all the noise both in my head and out silences and there is only feeling and seeing, not even understanding"

THERESA GOESSMANN

My upbringing influenced me massively; especially the inaccessibility of art. As a result, I don't take art for granted"

MATTHIAS ESCH

I am not sure what reality is right now, but art production has been able to ground me. Society needs artists to keep producing"

JOSEPH JUSTUS

The world we live in has never been so complicated and as a person who relates with both reality and art, I am trying to comprehend these elements by exposing them to the viewer"

MARTINA PIZZIGONI

Guest Interviews

I wouldn't want to be the art dealer in a suit that sits at a desk and deals with phone calls and people that aren't around anymore"

EDOARDO MONTI

Painting allows me to locate and explore the dynamics of the imagination by re-inventing the world as a hallucinatory playground"

CHRIS GILVAN-CARTWRIGHT

My practice enables me to mentally take back control of my own body, whereby the surface I am working on becomes my anatomy in a symbolic medical operation which I am performing"

PAUL ANAGNOSTOPOULOS

Artist Interviews

My practice enables me to mentally take back control of my own body, whereby the surface I am working on becomes my anatomy in a symbolic medical operation which I am performing"

LUCY RALPH

Artist Interviews

The word artist somewhat intimidates me, there's this common misconception of differentness and mysteriousness that I don't identify with"

KRISTY CHAN

I think there are three reasons why people create, those are therapy, communication, and intervention. I don't think that one is more important than the other or better than the other, but I do think that an artist is successful when they can do all three"

MORGAN EVERHART

The best parameter that works for me is if I can't finish a painting the day I started it, better not start it at all"

ALEKSANDAR BEZINOVIC

I see around me images that attract me instinctively and I want to reproduce these images, these astonishments. So I try and of course it fails"

ANTOINE PUISAIS

Life needs all-sorts to be rich, a variety of marks that sit together, co-exist, and just are. Life is dry without variety and for me so is painting"

DANNIELLE HODSON

My practice problematises the experience of the past-future continuum and reflects on old photography as a practice of fixing a moment, which is now dead"

KATYA GRANOVA

Painting is so hard, but I feel at home when i'm painting"

YAEL BEN-SIMON

I never thought that I wanted to be an artist; I've always felt that I am an artist"

STELLA KAPEZANOU

My main goal in painting is to deliver a sense of immediacy and to find ways to bring the values I find important in life into the painting"

YISHAY HOGESTA

Artist Interviews

Landscapes and nature are beautiful, I don't want to destroy them with my paint"

TAMIM SIBAI

Artist Interviews

I think I mostly hope viewers will walk away having shared an intimate space for remembering"

B CHEHAYEB

Artist Interviews // Video Series

Abstract qualities are the things I’m looking at of all works, those are the things I am seduced by"

GUY HADDON GRANT

I have come to value what goes into the painting other than actually painting"

AMY WINSTANLEY

I think i’m generally a very colourful person. There’s no way of denying that. It’s just my feelings"

JUDAS COMPANION

I prefer them to exists freely, as emblems or symbols in a concentrated fantasy world"
